A teenage gymnast was found hanged in the woods after telling his girlfriend how worried he was about telling his parents he had crashed the brand new car they had bought him. According to Daily Mail, Athena La told the coroner that boyfriend Ruslan Gutu, 18, was 'shaking' as he told her he was worried about how he would pay for the damage to his car after crashing it into a Land Rover.
Later on, he was found hanged in nearby woodland in his hometown in Bracknell, Berkshire, hours after sending his mother a chilling text saying soon he would be 'watching from above'.
Miss La said: 'He told me he had been driving his car which was new and had crashed it into a Land Rover. He was shaking as he told me. It was brand new and he seemed really worried. 'He didn't want to tell his parents and he was worried about how he was going to pay for the damage.
'The car seemed to be the only worry but he said he was lonely. I told him he had his family, me and his friends. When I mentioned his friends, he became quite upset. I think he had alienated them due to his changes in mood.' He asked me if I had any rope or paracetamol and asked how much paracetamol it would take to overdose. I told him he was being stupid. He left at around 6am.'
Ruslan's body was later discovered hanged in the woods.
